Get Well fun fold card using Back on Your Feet and Forever Fern by Stampin' Up!


Today I'm sharing a cute Get Well fun fold card that I made for a new friend who has just had surgery. It was the perfect excuse to use the new to me Back On Your Feet stamp sets - the images are so cute! I nearly used some retired designer series paper but decided to use a stamp from the lovely Forever Fern stamp set to create a background. 

The card base is Crumb Cake cut @ 10.5cm x 29.7cm scored @ 7.25cm and 14.8cm. Next I cut Basic White panels @ 6.9cm x 10.2cm and 10.2cm x 14.5cm - the foliage was stamped around the edges with Granny Apple Green ink. I stamped the sloth on another piece of Basic White in Memento Black and coloured it with Stampin' Blends before using one of the Tasteful Labels dies. The embossed Crumb Cake layer

Birthday cards - Celebrate Sunflowers for #GDP296

Hello and welcome to my blog,

I hope your week has been a good one - mine started with a lovely surprise on Monday because my card for last week's Global Design Project challenge #GDP295 was picked as a #GDPwinner! How wonderful is that.

Today I'm playing along with #GDP296 a CASE the designer challenge. For my card, I used Celebrate Sunflowers, Many Messages Bundle and some retired Brights designer series paper from my "collection". I even took the time to lined up the design - neat eh!
I'm so excited to be CASE-ing the talented and lovely Emma at Coastal Crafter - her card is beautiful and as usual there's lots of inspiration from the rest of the Design Team. 
I was totally inspired by the blocks of colour down the left hand side of Emma's card and the monochromatic stamping.

For my card I started with Thick Basic White cut @ 14.8cm x 21cm scored @ 10.5cm for the base.  I cut small blocks of retired Brights designer series paper and glued them to a piece of Basic White measuring 4cm x 14.5cm before adding to the base.  On another piece of Basic White cut @ 9cm x 14.5cm I randomly stamped the large sunflower in Smoky Slate. I glued a strip of Silver foil (also retired) to the left hand side of the stamped panel before adding to the base. I used a sentiment label that I had previously stamped using Many Messages in Versamark on Basic Black and heat embossed in White. I die cut another Silver Foil label using the Messages die and layered them before adding to the card with mini dimensionals. I tied a Pool Party Sheer Ribbon bow and adhered beside the label with a Mini Glue Dot. Last bit not leadt I added some of the pretty Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed sequins.
I made a second card, this time creating a rainbow with blocks of Brights cardstock. To change it up a little I used gold foil, Fine Art ribbon and different coloured sequins from Artistry Blooms.
I love both - do you have a favourite?

Flowers of Friendship card for #GDP295


Today's card was created for the Global Design Project #GDP295 Theme Challenge featuring the lovely Flowers of Friendship bundle by Stampin' Up!
The theme this week is Growing Garden and when I'm not in my craft room I love spending time pottering in our garden. 
I think these cards are both so pretty - I can't quite decide which is my favourite. They were also inspired by a rainbow card made by the lovely Emma Goddard, Coastal Crafter a few months ago.
For each card the base is half a sheet of A4 cut in half and scored in half. The matting layer is cut @ 10.2cm x 14.5cm and embossed with the Bark 3D embossing folder for added texture.  I stamped the flowers and leaves in memento, coloured them with Stampin' Blends, punched them out and used mini glue dots to layer them. The sentiments from the same stamp set were stamped in versamark ink and heat embossed with white emboss powder. 
You can see below all the product I used. If you click on any of the photo's you will be taken to my Stampin' Up! online shop. You can watch how I made the second card here:-
